Recently, Robert Atkins updated his blog with a new post showing a new project he has been working on with Ted Jacobson. The new concept art depicts a forward swept wing(FSW) fighter. Now at 1st glance you might think it’s not GI Joe-related. However, considering that Atkins is a big Skystriker fan(confirmed while interviewing him in 2008)….and, well…look, at that:
Notice the Skystriker logo on the vertical stabilizers? The concepts prior to the final design range from F-14 Tomcat/Skystriker XP-14F influence to F-15 Eagle, SU-47 Berkut and/or Hunt For The Decepticons Terradive to possible Ace Combat Falken/Morgan influences. Maybe even Yukikaze. Click on the headline to check out Atkin’s concept fighter.
More info to come at JoeCon 2013 next month and Mindbender’s Clinic(May 18th at the Fairfield Marriot in Rapid City South Dakota)!
